on this item? please come forward. >> good morning, aim may chan. i'm a legislative advisor for david chu. i want to express our support for resolution before you that prioritizes impact fee revenues from the transbay improvements in china town. the china town neighborhood, which supervisor chu represents, is as sarah mentioned, one of the densest neighborhoods with the least amount of open space. portsmouth square in particular is the only park in the heart of the neighborhood. it is used daily by seniors, by children and other low income and immigrant residents from our community for exercise, recreation and community gathering. it is a space heavily used. it is important to the district, to the community and in much need of repair. while there are a few other playgrounds, there is really a great demand for more open space for this very dense neighborhood. it would benefit the health and well-being of the residents. that is why our office urges the commission to support the resolution before you, thank you. >> thank you. >> next speaker. >> president buell, commissioners, general manager g

's building in coy tower doesn't have again and that we set up -- i've been talking to david chu's office for setting up a citizen's advisory committee or some type of committee that can work with the art commission at rec and park to help manage these issues so that there is communications between the two departments and that we don't let our heritage fall in disrepair like what has happened, and since i've been talking to a lot of people, not many people have been inside the building and want to see inside the building, so maybe either rec and park or the zoo can have a little mini open house so that people can go in and see for themselves the current condition of the mother's building, and i think it's all more important to what happened to the zoo house, and thank you for your consideration. >> thank you. >> okay, we have time for one more under this part of the general public comment, it will be continued again near the end of the calendar, so this is our last speaker. >> how many speakers do we have. we're going to extend it, we have one more person at this. >> are you going to be s

to this memo is file 121065 which is introduce legislation by the board of supervisors specifically david chu creating something called a polk street alcohol restricted use district among other things, and really what it does is create something -- a new lower polk street, alcohol restricted use district that doesn't exist, it's similar to other restricted use districts in the city but many of them in the city are being removed as opposed to being created so the concern that staff has is that this would restrict as it's written, it will restrict all new and on and off sale license establishments with some exemptions for restaurants, there's a blanket requirement that all restaurants close at midnight, it would also require all new entertainment permits to obtain conditional use authorization which is currently not a requirement in that area and it's a pretty big area with streets -- it's not just polk, it's got boundaries that go up to larken and van ess, and as of right now, it's at least a 6 month process to go through conditional use at the planning department for entertainment, so that's
